An asymmetrical roofline and a combination of materials - lap siding, stone, and cedar shingles - create an engaging personality for this home. Mullioned windows march across the front. Columns support the peaked roofline of the portico.
The open floor plan fosters both daily activities and entertaining. Elevated ceilings and lots of windows contribute to a spacious atmosphere. To the left of the foyer, the dining room is highlighted by columns and a bumped-out window. The corridor kitchen lies between the breakfast nook and the dining room, facilitating meal service. There's an arched pass-through from the kitchen into the great room. The fireplace is surrounded by windows above built-in storage units. French doors lead to the deck.
A hall to the right of the foyer leads past closets to two bedrooms, a full bath, and a laundry room, complete with sink, cabinets, and folding counter. Double doors seclude the large master bedroom, which has a tray ceiling, a door to the deck, and a bath with a shower and whirlpool tub.
A central staircase leads down to the double garage. A coat closet is tucked beneath the stairs. A windowed room adjacent to the garage can be used for storage or furnished as a bedroom or playroom.

Exterior Elevations: In addition to the front exterior, your
drawing set will include drawings of the rear and sides of your house as well.
These drawings give notes on exterior materials and finishes. Particular
attention is given to cornice detail, brick and stone accents, or other finish
items that make your home unique.
Foundation Plan: The foundation page dimensions, concrete
walls, footings, pads, posts, beams, bearing walls, and any stepped foundation
information along with any retaining wall info (schematic only). A typical wall
section for the home is also usually included on this page (if not, it is
elsewhere in your plan set, as space allows). If your plan features a poured
concrete slab rather than a basement or crawlspace, the foundation page shows
footings and details for the slab, and includes plumbing locations.
Floor Plan(s): Exterior and interior wall framing, and
windows/doors are dimensioned. Room sizes are indicated and any beams, posts
and structural bearing points are called out. The floor plans include an
electrical legend, and electrical fittings, lights and outlets are shown. Floor
Plans will also indicate cross–section details (provided on the sections page)
and show any special framing details applicable to the design. Cabinet elevations
are included for kitchen and bathrooms; some designs feature cabinet elevations
for design–related built–ins too.
Building Sections: Building sections show changes in
floor, ceiling, or roof height, and the relationship of one level to another. Our
section pages also show how the stairs are calculated (if there are some!) and
depict roof and foundation members. We try and draw sections to show the most
useful information — choosing locations where there are elements you or your
contractor might need clarification on.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Sections and elevations depict the standard foundation only.
Roof Plan: Roof framing or truss directions are
shown, slope directions are indicated and structural members are sized and
called out if applicable. The gravity loads used to calculate the rafters,
beams and posts are indicated , and we also show gutters, downspouts, and any
roof venting required for your home.
Notes and Details
home comes detailed to meet the requirements of the latest adopted version of
the ‘International Residential Code’, and our notes and details pages outline
all the elements applicable to the design of your home. Compliance with further
standards may need to be incorporated into your plan set, depending on the
requirements of your building department — these are usually done locally.
